Hey ya'll.... This is better than when Prez Gerald Ford forgot to shout "FORE!!" and beaned a perfectly innocent minding-his-own-business bystander.
According to Duane, this is "A comedy writer's dream." It goes like this:
"The Vice President had a little hunting incident yesterday, peppering a friend with buckshot in the cheek, neck and chest. According to press accounts, Texas Attorney Harry Whittington had approached the Vice President without announcing his presences, and when the Veep tracked a covey of quail, he shot without realizing Whittington was there. Mr. Whittington is in intensive care, but is expected to make a full recovery.
Now, today will be the day when comedy writer's all over the world finally admit there is a God, because this incident will probably eclipse all previous presidential or vice presidential gaffes in modern history. Remember Monica Lewinsky? You won't after this week. Remember Gerald Ford's trip down the stairs? Again, not after people get done this week...."
